This is a difficult question to answer because it’s highly dependant on your personal situation and preferences. If you’d like to access tax-free cash to help fund a once in a lifetime holiday, home improvements, a better retirement or help your kids with tax advantageous inheritance money, it could be a great option for you.
If you’re over 55 years old and you own a home that has a value of at least £70,000 without a large outstanding mortgage, chances are you can take advantage of equity release :-).
Interest rates for equity release vary between 2.96% and 6%. The current average is 4.92%, to get an estimate on how much you could release and the rates involved you can click this link.
Depending on your circumstances, you could either choose to not repay anything and let the interest come out of your home’s value. OR, you could pay that amount off each month/year to retain the property’s equity.
No credit checks are conducted at the initial enquiry and will only be done when your mortgage broker has your permission to do so.
Depending on your circumstances, anywhere between 20% to 50% of the value of equity in your home.
Definitely not. This is a common misjudgement based on unregulated plans from over 20 years ago.
The equity release market is now regulated and monitored by the Financial Conduct Authority. You can never lose your home and will have permanent tenure until you pass or enter long term care.
By choosing equity release you are going to reduce the amount loved ones will inherit. However, that can be offset by taking advantage of the tax free cash you get from equity release and gifting it to them.
It’s also possible to put aside a fixed amount of your property’s value to guarantee an inheritance to a loved one.
Obviously, this argument is irrelevant to those not concerned with passing on inheritance or those with no beneficiaries to pass on the estate too.
If you need access to liquid funds, an alternative is to downsize your home. Selling your home, finding a new one and moving can a stressful process but it’s definitely a legitimate option and often better for your overall financial wellbeing.
